North Pier Hotel

Traveller (73)
Room & Suite (26)
Pool & Beach (3)


The North Pier Hotel sits proudly above Western Port Bay and is ideally located in the central township of Cowes, Phillip Island. Only 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne. Just a stone's throw across from the main beach on one of Victoria's only North facing coastlines, Cowes, The North Pier Hotel is the ideal spot to base yourself for your next visit to Phillip Island. The accommodation is wrapped around the bistro and bar which has been fitted out industrial style with a massive north facing new deck and serves good pub fair. A short stroll will find you on the doorstep to the many cafes, restaurants and boutique shops to explore and indulge in. Once known as 'The Continental Hotel', the North Pier Hotel leaves nothing of its prior namesake to be remembered. With every room having recently been fitted with new furnishings to ensure your stay is comfortable, and major bar and restaurant renovations were undertaken earlier in 2017, The North Pier Hotel is ready to host your next stay.

Great place to stay, close to beach and town centre. Clean and tidy. Entrance is off Bass Ave but not well signed as entrance. Most parking is on the street but usually no trouble getting a park but in busy periods could be an issue. I would stay here again especially if got the

Had a good pub style meal here which was value for money. Plenty of choices on the menu and good fast service. There was a choice of sitting inside or outside and we chose outside as we had a lovely view of the bay. Staff were friendly and helpful

Comfortable room, great view, close to restaurant/pub, and close to township of Cowes and other Phillip Island attractions. Will use again on future visits to Phillip Island for motor racing events or a relaxing few days away.
